There is something to be said for blowing the doors off a $50,000+ car with a $5000 used motorcycle that wasn't near the fastest 600 when it was new.

Me. Until recently I haven't owned a bike that would go that fast.



"I don't think its possible to merge onto an interstate without breaking 130. I don't know how to not do it."



In California, you'd rear-end someone as soon as you pulled onto the freeway at that speed.

Speaking of m/c speeders. I saw the cops run into a speeder on a green Ksaki Ninja while stopping him on "Wildest Police Chases" last night.



What color's your bike, longride? We haven't heard much from you lately. Did you make bail? Or do they have internet access at the county slammer?

You're right. But the press has never made it an issue.



What we do need to be concerned about is the media deciding to make a crusade about m/c speeders. If the media starts harping on this then the kneejerk idiots in the legislatures will respond with more stupid laws. Lord help us if they decide to make it a "public safety" issue. Americans will pretty much support any sort of "totalitarianism with a smile" legislation if you scare them enough with newspaper and TV propaganda.

What is an "asp woman"? I've heard of an "ass woman", this must be even better.

And pretty soon the only place you'll be able to speed in will be Mexico.



Ghod save us. Margarita anyone?
